Kaanapali Beach Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great maintained grounds. Disappointed with the service at the Tiki Bar. Also disappointed with the condition of the room. Very old. No fridge

Accepting the beach. Not a dislike but just an update of the resort.

I loved that i could hear the waves crashing from my window. Every employee i encountered was very pleasant and sincere.

Very clean, nightly entertainment, very close to beach and shopping, beautiful setting Downside, no microwave in rooms, parking is expensive,

Great music most nights. Unfortunately people smoke in no smoking clearly marked units. Howeversecucatctryscrerespond

This quiet resort is a comfy 3 star contrast to the upscale resort next door and upscale shops and restaurants that are just a short, lovely walk along the beach. The rooms are comfortable and clean, the staff was very friendly, the grounds are spacious and pretty, the extensive beach is gorgeous, and the public bus nearby can take you to bustling city and Harbor in about 20 minutes. There are a lot of amenities on site, and the location is excellent. This resort claims to be the true Hawaiian resort, and if amenity shacks on the grounds with palm frond roofs are their criteria, this is true. A great value.

Loved the welcome breakfast! It was nice getting a run down of things to do around the island and get to know other guests

Close to the beach, shops, restaurants, etc. Also had a lot of rental options such as chairs, surfboards, sup boards, coolers, snorkel gear, etc.

It was absolutely amazing! The room was a bit dated though. Other than that, perfection.

Loved how close the beach was everything was really nice but the staff at the tiki grill were always rude.

Very good hotel for the money.... Steps away from the beach and super nice staff.... Definitely would stay there again!

Rode out hurricane lane, the staff and facilities made it as pleasurable and seemless experience as can be. Information and communication of the event was forthcoming and correct. The hotel staff were empathetic, accommadating and helpful to guests all around. Mahalo, and well be back soon.

The parking spaces in the ramp were extremely narrow and frequently filled up. They were difficult to navigate and at $12 per day, a bad deal.

A very pleasant and authentic Maui hotel. Great experience.

Great location. Right on the beach. Ask the valet boys for cheap food recommendations versus paying more for meals. They know all the good places to eat.

Every member of the staff was very friendly and made us feel at home. The room was spacious and clean with a stunning view if the garden and pool

Location is ideal. Minute walk to beach from hotel room. Family friendly - great kids program. Room was just ok, but staff and location make up for it. My 9 year son says, “staff were the best and they were nice.”

First time in Maui, and loved it! KBH had a lot to do with it, great experience and will definitely come back here. The food at the hotel was the only that we didn’t love, but overall great experience. Thank you for everything.
